There comes a time in every car’s life when its reliability decreases, and it needs one Ford repair after another. While repairing and maintaining your car is always a worthwhile investment, it might be time to consider trading your vehicle in for a new one at Folsom Lake Ford. But how do you know when it’s time to throw in the towel on your beloved Ford car? Let’s find out. 

How Extensive and Costly is the Damage?  

Before you schedule a repair, it’s important to get an estimate of what type of repairs your vehicle will need, and how much those repairs will cost. You never know when your vehicle just needs a quick fix or if it will require some serious and costly repairs. Typically, if repairs cost more than your vehicle is currently worth, it’s not the best investment.   

What’s Your Car Worth?  

You can easily find out your trade-in value with a quick online form from Kelley Blue Book. You’ll just need to look up your vehicle by searching its make and model, your license plate number, or your VIN number. Then, you’ll need to share a few more details about your vehicle like its features, mileage, and condition.  

How Much Life Does Your Car Have Left?  

If you plan to drive your car for many more years, it may be worthwhile to invest in repairs. However, if this repair is just another in a long list of recent problems, your vehicle may be on its last legs. If that’s the case, it might be time to consider trading it in and purchasing a new one.
